Is it even possible to install a cam 180 degrees off???
I was reading an old post while searching and came across a post where a guy said not to install the cam 180 degrees off, something about not installing it on wrong stroke. I laughed it off, but then figured maybe I am missing something.
Seems to me that as long as the crank and the cam are lined up correctly, it's the cam that DETERMINES the stroke, not the other way around. I know you can have the distributor installed 180 degrees off, but I don't think a cam can be 180 degrees off.
I know you can install a cam off if it is not lined up correctly with the crank, but I'm not referring to that.
